About a year ago or so I tried using 3d on my 82" Mits WD-82642 3d TV.

The glasses I bought at that time were the True Depth 3d DLP Link glasses.

They did work really well. The only issue I had with them is that they are tinted glasses.

So it was like watching TV with sunglasses on. frown.gif Which was enough to to make me decide to officially pass on 3d.

I've noticed that they now make these same glasses but in a non tinted version.

Just wondering if anyone here has actually tried these specific glasses, or any glasses that are non tint, and if so which ones? And thoughts on it?

And I've been trying to find out if you lose anything by going with non tinted 3d glasses but am having no luck whatsoever with that. frown.gif

Thanks

Is anyone else at least curious about this?

I have a feeling based on alot of searching, that the only way I'm gonna find out the answer to this is to just buy the glasses and try em out for myself. redface.gif


I might just buy em and try em out, and do a pepsi coke type challenge with em.

I can't possibly be the only person out there that doesn't like wearing sunglasses when watching TV. biggrin.gif

Why do you think you've found tintless glasses? I've read the item description and searched the reviews for relevant keywords, and nobody mentions less tint or light loss.

If you don't like the tint of active, welcome to the club. Passive glasses block much less light smile.gif

I guess I shouldn't necessarily say tintless as in completely tintless.

They just look to me in the pictures at least, to have less tint in the older version of these glasses that I own.

Judging by the pictures of the glasses they look noticeably less dark to me.

But I could be wrong.

So that's why I'm hoping for some first hand user experience here. biggrin.gif

Not to be a negative Nancy, but I don't think a product image alone is enough to judge.

For instance, LG's clip on glasses look pitch black in product photos...

http://www.amazon.com/LG-AG-F220-Cinema-Glasses-LED-LCD/dp/B00540XS32/ref=sr_1_70?ie=UTF8&qid=1364069882&sr=8-70&keywords=3d+glasses

...but in real life they're just as light as any other passive lens.

I don't know if these are the newer or older model of the glasses you are referring to, but thought I'd give you a couple links I found. You can pm that member for clarification. smile.gif

edit: Oh, those are DLP link glasses, and the ones you're getting excited about are IR...

Well I tried :P

this is precisely why I dislike 3D.
